Can You Use Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) with Type 2 Diabetes?
Yes you can and there's a fairly good chance if you have any autoimmune component to your pancreas that, you can reverse some of that. We do quite often see people with type 2 diabetes whose sugar is vastly improved one to two months after they start on LDN and get a reasonable dose. One of the very common question that we do get actually about LDN is how much sugar does it contain and the answer is I don't think any of our formulations can be any sugar whatsoever.
Although I have seen on the Facebook page some people ask for sucrose or dextrose as a filler because they're afraid of microcrystalline cellulose or you know there's still some compounding pharmacies that use lactose or you know but again this is about working with your compounding pharmacy to find those fillers that are going to work best for you because you know there's just one that's going to be the best. When you're dealing as Sam talked about earlier when you're dealing with Ultra Low Dose it's probably not going to be a capsule that's probably going to be a liquid of some sort so if somebody reacted perhaps they actually reacted to the individual components of the base and not necessarily the drug itself. That's you know, are those other issues and hose are significant issues and they need to be addressed because we want to make sure that everybody is as successful as possible.
